Enjoying a glass of soda 2012-02-19 14:47:21 Reply

Whenever i pour myself a glass of soda, i do so because i like the taste of it.
If i'm thirsty i'll drink water or lemonade.
But once i start drinking i just gulp the whole glass in about 5 seconds and then i'm bummed because i don't have any left.
You could say that the purpose of my soda-drinking is to enjoy it, but i don't really enjoy it. Only for 5 seconds.

This is really annoying. For example, when i'm going to watch a movie and i pour myself a nice glass of coke to drink while watching it the glass will be empty before the movie even starts and then there's is nothing left to enjoy while watching.
Except if i also got myself some snacks, but those will also be gone pretty soon as i will eat everything at once.

Is there a way to prolong my enjoyment? If i tell myself to take a little zip every once in a while instead of gulping the whole glass, will i enjoy it more or is there an equal amount of enjoyment, but just with more breaks in between?

Do you drink everything at once if you have a glass of soda or do you take a zip every once in a while?

These are the questions i ask myself, to become a better person. To have a better life. To achieve greatness.

Soda is revolting. I've drank coke for the past 15 years. It's not the taste I like, it's the caffeine I want.

use straws and get really cold drinks.

I found that by using a straw I could almost constantly drink without downing the hole cup in a few sconds and its really cold you will need to take breathers to warm your mouth up as it almost goes numb when the drink is really icy cold.


my love of material goods is far greater than my love of food

You could just buy a 3 litter bottle of soda.
and pour it into your glass every now and then during the movie.
It helps if you think about how to resolve your problem o,o~ very simple silly~

Why don't you drink coffee then? Nice and hot. Or energy drinks, even more caffeine.

That would be a pretty good idea, but i don't particularly enjoy sodas that are that cold.

Did you think i didn't thought of that?
It's just no possibility for me, because i really have to watch my expenses and can't afford those amounts of soda.
In my fridge i have three 1 liter bottles of soda for one week. And i live with 2 other people here, who are co-owner of the soda

I like cold sodas. I usually just put in a few ice cubes.

Wait, not cubes, bigger!

That'll make it so 5 seconds will drink 1/20 of your cup.

Swish and suck on the soda for a few seconds. Get the taste out.

Why would you drink soda for the caffeine? There are much better alternatives, if that's all you want.

I was giving a working definition of America. Implying it, at least.

Then just stock up if you've got a few bucks. Sometimes you can get really good deals, like four 2-liter bottles for $4, or four 12-packs for $10.

I don't live in America, we don't even have 2 liter bottles.
And no, it's not expensive if you buy it once, but if have to buy a new bottle every time it adds up.

No, I mean America. The conceptual identity, not the country.

These are the questions i ask myself, to become a better person. To have a better life. To achieve greatness.

Different people respond differently to these things, so you will have to try sipping etc for yourself. I seriously advise you not to go down the route of drinking much more as it is pretty unhealthy even if you could afford it. Medics dissagree on what effects sugar etc has on the body, but drinking litres of the stuff, especially cola is unlikely to be too good.

If you find it difficult not to drain the whole glass, then may you could try pouring out half a glass, then the other half later.
